Juvederm® is one of the newest hyaluronic acid dermal fillers approved by the FDA. It is derived from a natural substance that is found throughout the human body. Since it is so similar to your own tissue, there is no need for a sensitivity test.
The Juvederm injection treatments help to 'fill out' and smooth away lines or wrinkles, acne scars and enhance the lip size and shape. Results are immediate with minimal recovery time.
Juvederm although quite similar to Restylane has some differences in the structure of the product. Juvederm, comes in three "formulas" (Juvederm, Juvederm Plus, and Juvederm Ultra Plus) so it has the capacity to handle tiny lines as well as deep folds.
Your physician will discuss the best formula to fit your needs. Juvederm helps define lip borders, fill vertical lip lines and wrinkles, smoothes superficial forehead lines and crow's feet, plumps thinning lips (for increased volume - sometimes referred to as lip augmentation), improves deep folds on the sides of the mouth - nasolabial folds and Marionette lines.
